What started existence as the sap of a tree that grew several million years ago in a primordial rainforest is now a beautiful stone, prized for its unique colouring in the jewellery trade.
Here at Henryka, we recognise the slightly magical origins of amber and pride ourselves on creating stunning, one-of-a-kind amber jewellery pieces you can use to make a statement every day.
Amber’s magical pedigree
As a material with a unique genesis, especially compared with other precious stones, amber has long been associated with healing and folk medicine. The ancient Greek doctor Hippocrates used amber as a cure for various ailments, while Traditional Chinese medicine uses amber as a means of ‘tranquillising the mind’.
Whatever you believe, the bottom line is that amber is a bewitching, eye-catching material that makes glorious jewellery for any occasion.
Types of amber
Amber isn’t just amber in hue. In fact, we stock a wide range of different amber hues, each as rich and varied as the next. Our speciality is Baltic amber, which appears naturally in a spectrum of colours in and around the Baltic coast region of Europe, dependent on what kind of heat and pressure the rock was formed under through the millennia.
Green amber is found closest to the bark of the ancient tree, while red and cognac shades are from amber that has been super-heated underground. To achieve that gives our amber jewellery its iconic glossy shine, amber is polished to perfection to bring out its natural colour in a brilliant way.
Our amber range
Amber is our passion here at Henryka - Baltic amber jewellery was one of our very first product lines we introduced when we started out in 2006. Today, our collection spans from amber bracelets to amber rings and brooches - all in a range of ever-changing, one-of-a-kind styles that will guarantee you stand out from the crowd.
From causing a buzz with our range of insect jewellery to pheasants, parrots and kingfishers in our bird collection, the world is your oyster when it comes to animal options. If you prefer to keep things a little more low-key, we have subtle amber jewellery options galore in the form of teardrop bracelets and earrings. These are just the thing to complete a businesslike look with effortless style, or to complement a show-stopping dress for a special occasion.
Laced in sterling silver’s delicate grasp, our amber jewellery does the talking through this interplay - meaning our designs are at once delicate and striking.
